Luke 24:15 ‘..Jesus himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were kept from recognizing him.’
Two disciples walk with Jesus after he has risen but did not recognize him. Where is Jesus present around you? One may reason on how a filthy beggar in broken shoes, someone who may appear to have a drug habit can represent Jesus? How can Jesus be in this person? Imagine what people thought of the way Jesus looked on his way to Calvary, bloodied, soiled and exhausted…..and the people may have reflected, that surely this is deserving for a ‘true criminal.’ How wrong we so often may be. Where there is need, it speaks as much about us as the person before us on what we do. ‘‘But it may support a drug habit by helping him.’’ Or it may be the act of love that brings that person back. Only God knows and love is never sown in vain. Our trust is in God not the beggar. Bless you.
Prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you for the ultimate grace in giving your son, may we recognize him in all creation. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.
